commander of the operation told us today the city itself has largely been taken there are a few holdouts still in the city a few job this isis fighters still hiding in basements waiting to ambush iraqi troops that are clearing the city that are checking for mines and booby traps but otherwise the city is largely under iraqi control and i believe they announced that on the radio for the troops to hear because all of a sudden in all directions people began firing in the air and cheering in celebration nevertheless the fighting continues in the suburbs around and throughout the province as well as far from it they expect another few days at least of fighting before they declare mission accomplished so civilians have tough few days ahead of them on top of what they've been through already tens of thousands of people have fled their homes trying to find them safety trying to get

from a security consultant and an attorney specializing in religious terrorism. the modern vogue for vehicle and or knife attacks is easily explained bombs are difficult bombing components are hard to come by and they're getting harder but it's easy to come by well a car or a van or maybe even a large truck or lorry and a knife or a sword you know these things can't be controlled by authorities terribly successfully not the way that bomb components could be controlled and what some of the leaders and other european countries have said that we just need to quote unquote get used to the fact that this is part of our lives and it's very sad to see that in a continent such as europe which has had so many freedoms has such diversity of different people and has allowed those freedoms has had very very liberal policies that protected the people so it is sad to see that people are now no longer surprised. and while those events were unfolding in brussels on friday night

capacity this man with a c s spray and the attacker is now in custody at a police station in central london this latest incident is one more reason for concern because of course we have to keep in mind that throughout just recent months several terrorist attacks had taken place here in britain.

counter-terrorism expert david lo told us the extremists involved in such instance may be independently. these are the types of it's not like it's a expect for coming here and it looks as though this group has inspired many individuals and when you compare this to spain where clearly there was you know about ten or so people working together be interested to see what will come out from this one outside impasse was this a bit working on their own or do they have some form of assistance. thing you know there was an attack in finland as well last week that was suspected to be a terrorist incident i mean looking at philip i mean one people are asking why for the peoples or for the white space. if you look at a group like. they have they don't recognise any geographical boundaries if you're

8:15 pm
seems wrong. just don't. get to shape our. culture. and in. the trail.
8:16 pm
find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. welcome back the venezuelan president nicolas maduro has condemned the latest u.s. sanctions as an act of hatred against his country. this you see only good will have played this measures are part of an economy coupe has delivered a financial an economy blow against the recovery of the venezuelan economy that once again insanity has been unleashed insanity of in time any swelling hatred that he rolls by on us problems from lending to the man a swelling government and the state oil company that the toughest measures so far against the country explaining the sanctions the u.s. ambassador to the u.n.
8:17 pm
accuse the president of turning fenice way into a dictatorship. it's a strong message for the people of venezuela and it's a strong message to the dural we are not going to tolerate the dictatorship he's trying to create venezuela's president has come out with a very strong reaction to the sanctions that nikki haley is referring to that were signed off on by trump president trump on friday and target the country's energy sector terms national security adviser did comment on the possibility of military intervention the country there's no such thing really anymore as as only a military option or de or diplomatic option or or an economic option we try to integrate all elements together no military actions are into subpoenaed in the near future and not long ago trump stated that a more physical plan of action could be possible when it comes to the south american country we have many options for that as well and by the way i'm not going to rule out a military option but those comments put trump in direct contradiction to what he
8:18 pm
himself recently promised when he said the u.s. would no longer participate in nation building and trying to force other countries to live and their image we've been moving from one wrecked was it divergent to another we cannot be the policeman of the world we do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone we will no longer use american military might to construct democracies in faraway lands would try to rebuild other countries in our own image those days are now over so government officials in venezuela have criticized the sanctions saying the u.s. is possibly trying to do just that and the thinks it could have consequences prevent as well as people that it has already facing a pretty severe economic crisis so this is just going to agitate the economic situation in the country which is clearly the goal of the truck administration what is unclear is what exactly is their objective certainly a military option has been in the plans of the u.s.
8:19 pm
government for venezuela. many years simply because it's a large oil supplying country the us would desperately like to recover control of venezuela's oil industry and as long as there's a government in place in venezuela that refuses to subordinate to us agenda the us will always have a military option on the table in case it's necessary to ensure that they have control over venezuela's oil. venezuela's foreign minister who spoke exclusively to r.t. he said his country needs to unite against hostile foreign powers. now is a moment a decision has to be made whether venezuelans will take our side on the sanctions and be a nation united we need all of our wits about us to withstand the threats and consequences of these actions. the whole region must react in the same way like when we reacted
8:20 pm
to the threats of force against venezuela we must be ready to use any resources to protect our people we are waiting for a reaction one that corresponds with international law the most essential reaction is that the sovereignty of our country must be respected that there is no need to interfere in venezuela's domestic affairs and that the policy of one sided sanctions that violate international law must not be tolerated. poland is demanding billions of euros from germany and reparations for the second world war. in fact it could be said that poland is demanding justice we are a victim of the second world war the damage was not repaired in any way just the opposite today talking about her pray sense is a claim for justice and for what belongs to poland surveys show a majority of poles support the idea of germany paying compensation for the war the exact sum is unclear but one government estimate put it at more than seven hundred
8:21 pm
billion euros and this isn't the only issue overshadowing poland's relations with its european partners poland has refused to accept my can quote is imposed by the e.u. this week the polish interior minister blasted the policy saying that except in so many migrants into europe is effectively putting a noose around the constance neck the czech republic and hungary have joined poland in resisting migrant quotas under the scheme walsall was supposed to accept seven thousand refugees but so far it's taken in that way or poland's foreign minister has defended his country's position after a warning from the french president. i think that poland statements are another arrow in the strategy of the country and the manifestation of how this country wants to position itself on the margin of europe's history present and future the state chose today to isolate itself in the functioning progress of. poland is not isolating itself and has not been isolated it seems to me that president macro in
8:22 pm
carelessly follows media reports and doesn't know what's going on in our part of europe still it happens sometimes eastern europe analyst martin service says poland's refusal to toe the line is causing problems for the e.u. . the big country the major players. and of course if the no in cheating with the. european partners there's going to be problems further down the line of course the solution themselves from the big players in the european union specifically the journals of the french and of course they resent they feel as if they talked about the germans and the french and so on they're very skeptical of the policies being pursued by the european union a migration for example but of course the your opinion has got lots of other problems to resolve you know. the poles may dislike the european union but they get an awful lot of money from them and if they leave the bloc then the left the foreign money from somewhere else. the german government has baron the radical

8:24 pm
instrumental in organizing the violent scenes that marred the g twenty summit it's as model of first of all it is about a ban of the associations not a news outlet and from now on the operation of the site is with immediate effect a crime even from continues its operation then there will be reason to press charges that will surely follow starting from today. the web site was used to organize attacks on security services as world leaders mixed at the big get together but finding out just where the website was based has proved harder that it may first seem we understand that some two hundred fifty offices were involved in searching five properties in the area around the city of freiburg as they try to find out the source of where the website was coming from the operation uncovered numerous weapons raging from. tons to pursue slingshots all things that could be
8:25 pm
used to cause real damage if in the wrong hands which all begs the. question is this now with the new normal. politically active group such as far involved should we expect the violent scenes we saw in how to follow closely behind peter all of a germany. well that's it for me for now more and says humanist time and remember you can always catch up on breaking news on the page. our culture is awash in lives dominated by streams of never ending electronic hallucinations that. fiction until they are indistinguishable we have become the most. society on politics as
8:26 pm
a species of endless and needless political politicians and celebrities are to ruling parties are in reality one party to corporate and those who attempt to puncture this. breathless universe of to make news just trying to push through the cruelty and exploitation of the neo liberal force so far to the margins of society including by a public broadcasting system that has sold its soul for corporate money that we might as well be mice squeaking against an avalanche. we must. call the few we know. everyone in the world should experience leader. who will. go according to
